Gluten and wheat free Savoy Burritos.

Now this might sound weird at first but believe me it's a good alternative to the regular wheat or corn wraps: Savoy Burritos.

As I once said before: It's not about skipping, it's about replacing. I want some Burritos and I made it happen.

Savoy Burritos

For this recipe you will need:
  • Savoy
  • Quinoa
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Red Bellpepper
  • Cherry Tomatos (not in the picture)
  • Prawns
  • Avocado
  • Spinach

For the Sauce:
  • Greek Joghurt
  • Tahin

Before starting the rest, boil a liter of water. This will be used to soften the Savoy later on. Cut the onions into little pieces.

Sweat them, add the Quinoa and add the boiling water.

You can either add the (frozen) prawns directly into the pot or, as I did, put a bamboo steamer on the Quinoa.

While that is boiling away separate some huge Savoy leafes.

Cut off as much of the stems as possible so it won't be tough to chew later on.

I put the leaves into a bowl and poached them in boiling water. Especially the tough, lower part. Believe me: I once skipped this step. The Burritos weren't so pleasurable to eat.

After the savoy leaves are soft to your liking, dry them and set aside.

Now it's time to cut up allll of your vegetables. After finishing that job, take a bit of your joghurt and mix it with a tea spoon of Tahin. So good!

By the time you're done with everything both the prawns and the Quinoa should be done as well.

Let's get ready to rumble!

  1. Wie cool ist das denn? Das wird sofort gespeichert und bei Gelegenheit nachgemacht!!!
    Total super Idee!!!

    1. Das is eins meiner Lieblings Rezepte! Schön, dass es dich anspricht ;) Ich denke man kann sicher auch andre Kohls benutzen. Oder normalen Eisberg-Salat :) Denn Kohl, vorallem Wirsing, ist ja schon seeeeeehr stark im Eigengeschmack.
